iTunes Library Export

Suncore asked
Last Modified: 2012-05-11
How can I move my entire iTunes library and all its associated information (playlists, ratings, purchased TV shows etc) to a different MacBook Pro?
Watch Question

If you have an existing MacBook Pro then you can transfer all of your User settings, files and applications using the Migration Assistant located in the Applications\Utilities folder.

You need to be able to connect the old computer to the new one - preferably with a firewire cable - the Migration Assistant will lead you through it.


Thanks roylong - I definitely do not want to use the migration assistant - is there another way ?
This one is on us!
